I was really concerned about this track when I put it up cause the mix is pretty raw(not so good) but the tune lives or dies by people listening to ALL of it.
It’s a lot to ask of people. On a site like this where there is so much material to get through and so much great stuff to listen to there’s a tremendous temptation to listen to a minute or so and if it doesn’t grab you, move on. That’s valid from a normal listening point of view but some tracks need time to develop. I firmly believe that if we are going to set ourelves up as an alternative to NORMAL label based music we need to be more open to new sounds and new paces such that a tune that piques our curiosity demands further listerning to hear as the artist intended it. I’m quite willing to admit that the mix of the accoustic instruments is shoddy. It’s the best I could accomplish in the 20 or so hours I spent on the track. Garym, My bandmate could have made a better job since he normally sanitizes my efforts.(Two years of music college has given him a much more methodical approach than me)
HOWEVER there was a well-defined (in my head) concept of what I wanted from this track and it did that.
I was pretty bummed at the initial reception(or lack thereof) but then I got it.
Why listen to the whole thing until the punchline when there are more instantly gratifying tracks on the same page. It’s a tough call and in this case I was lucky people took the time.(Thanks:-)
We should be more forgiving of rough starts and long tunes cause that’s the format furthest away from the radio single and that’s what we’re trying to get away from isn’t it?

Thanks people. You’ve made my month. Really. :-)
Thank you all so much.
That’s how we do it on the CCMIXTER YEH ;-)

Really good. Manages to go from funky to synthy very smoothly. I really liked the part at the end with the different chords, wish that had gone on longer. Good use of the vocals too, the way that parts drop out to make room for the verses make it feel like a song.

I think you’re on to something when you say the two vocals seem to work together. The key to the success of the track is that it doesn’t seem so at first but then it becomes apparent when Mutchler makes his point at the end. This has the effect of keeping me guessing as the track gets pushed steadily along by the pulsating reggae engine. As each part of the musical puzzle is put into place I begin to get that weird “something is going on here but I don’t know what it is yet” feeling. The two vocals start off from what seems like two opposite cultural perspectives and yet by the end they have arrived in the same place with the same message and the ominous wail of the synth drives the point home. Very well done.

this is a tight idea and one that is carried off well. as you say, a few mixing issues but i agree that a move away from the radio/label formula is more important to this site than high-end production. respect peaCe

bass is sweet and thick throughout, holds it together, everything is perfectly fit to the song, even the mental ending
